McClellan: No Need to Notify Bush
Besides, the real president had things under control
On the day after more than 30,000 people -- including Unka Dick and Pickles -- were evacuated from their offices or homes in Washington, D.C., but the president, who was tricycling in Maryland was not notified until the threat passed, reporters grilled Press Secretary ScottMcClellan at his daily briefing.
For those who might have missed it on TV here are some choice excerpts, as McClellan continually refers to "protocols" and reporters essentially ask, "Wouldn't most men like to know when their home is evacuated and their wife is hustled to a secure bunker?" They also wonder about the small matter of the president being commander in chief and the capital, theoretically, coming under attack.
